If you are from a Black, Asian, or minority ethnic background and live or work in Renfrewshire, then you are invited our next meeting. Please contact info@engagerenfrewshire.com for details on the next meeting.

All you need to bring is a willingness to share your thoughts and experiences of life in Renfrewshire, as well as an enthusiasm for making suggestions for positive change and improvement. 


IN-Ren Race Equality Toolkit

The IN-Ren Race Equality Toolkit aims to support employers and practitioners in Renfrewshire to better understand the barriers faced by ethnically diverse communities when accessing services and employment.

The toolkit also aims to inspire action and inform learning to promote race equality.  It contains critical strategies, information and resources that practitioners can use to support conversations and combat discrimination and exclusion based on race. Each section highlights practical steps, small changes, top tips, links and references for further reading. As such, we intend to develop and update the toolkit over time and would welcome any feedback you may have on it.

Black History Month 2023 - Small Grants Funding for local organisation

Black History Month (BHM) is a celebration which recognises the achievements and contributions of people of diverse heritage around the world. In partnership with The National Lottery, Engage Renfrewshire and the IN-Ren Network a grant opportunity was created to bring these celebrations to life for Renfrewshire’s grassroots organisations.


The aim of this grant was to increase anti-racism and integration activity within the Renfrewshire community by supporting and encouraging community activity to celebrate Black History Month 2023, providing opportunities to celebrate and creating new relationships between people from ethnically diverse backgrounds and local groups.


We have completed our report bringing together the breadth of work, creativity, and learning from your Black History Month 2023 projects.
